Step 1

Pick your container.  

It can be an old or new bucket, flower pot or wooden crate, anything you find that you think will hold soil and has room for plants.

Step 2

Choose the herbs you like cooking with…..basil, parsley, mint, cilantro, rosemary or oregano, are just a few to pick from.  

Oh my, the smell of fresh oregano is divine.

Step 3

Make sure your container has good drainage….you may need to add holes. Put a layer of rocks in the bottom of the container over the holes to aid in water draining correctly.

Step 5

Water plants after planting.

Remember that herbs need lots of sun and you must check them each day for watering needs.

Containers tend to dry out quickly.

Also keep in mind that some herbs like it on the dryer side than others, for example Rosemary likes their soil rather dry where parsley and cilantro like a little more moisture.  

Just read your labels for care instructions when you make your purchase.Like it Pin it


Lastly. USE your herbs.  

They will grow better and bush out by you pinching off portions to use in your cooking.

Enjoy your harvest!
